Weekly challenge time :o)
I know Laura's busier than ten men, but I often do the challenge in the first couple of days and then spend the rest of the week wishing I still had one to do. She varies them quite a bit from week to week; sometimes with a certain color, sometimes with a specific string or pattern. I think I might go back through the archives and start trying some of the older ones while I wait for Monday morning to drag slooooowly around. Ha... can't say I know too many people who say it takes too long to get to Monday.
This week, the challenge was to use sepia (or brown). Not a huge fan of brown and black together, so I used brown and this beautiful nameless bluish color. Well, not completely nameless... in Micronland they call him XSDK05#36. *rolls eyes* Come on, Sakura. A little help here... if we can't have names, can we have more distinguishable colors on the caps? I always have to spot test the blues to make sure I have the right one. Maybe it's just me.
However, they do more than make up for this perfectly pigmented injustice with a product called the clear stardust gelly roll pen. It's 0% colored ink and 100% sparkle, and no photo or scan even comes close to doing it justice. Seriously, if you've never tried it, you don't know what you're missing (FYI It says 'clear star' on the barrel, product number XPGB#700). Gelly rolls run out of ink really fast, so once you're hooked you'll want to have two. For each hand.
Or one in every room, like I do with carmex.
Featherfall, purk, footlites, afterglo, indy-rella, and keeko. And stardust. ;o)
